Fabrication Solutions for the Mining Industry

Fabrication Solutions for the Mining Industry

Abstract

Whether building new mine operations or improving existing mines, Fluor’s fabrication solutions help Clients achieve optimal project success.

Fluor operates self-perform fabrication yards around the world. Fluor’s self-perform fabrication offers Clients a safer controlled construction environment, the ability to parallel offsite fabrication with ground level construction to optimize the schedule, and the opportunity to mitigate construction risks on mining projects. Recent fabrication project results in the mining industry allowed for a more productive work environment for experienced craft workers, reduced the field workforce and related remote location impacts to workers, facilitated less dependency on the challenges of the site location and condition, and mitigated for the HSE challenges onsite. Typical offsite fabrication options for mining Clients include:

  • Process Modules
  • Pipe Rack Modules
  • Preassembled Conveyor Modules
  • Preassembled Steel Structures
Client Benefits

Offsite fabrication offers advantages to help achieve significant time and cost savings, support fast-track project schedules and reduce risks such as adverse environmental conditions and labor shortages. Fabrication advantages include:

  • Early fabrication design to improve constructability
  • Modularization-specific designs
  • Focused material and equipment procurement planning to support offsite fabrication
  • Advanced sourcing methods
  • Global market knowledge / Global purchasing volume
  • Supply chain / Logistics / Expediting
  • Quality control / Quality assurance
